Trip report: Long Beach Island
We visited Long Beach Island for a linen delivery for New Years weekend. We typically dont have time to hang out and enjoy the beach scenery on a work day but being the off season we enjoyed every minute of it.
We started the trip by completing our delivery in Beach Haven Crest. It was a beautiful rental right on the beach.
View of AC from HolgateFrom there we decided to head to Beach Haven to find a restaurant for lunch. With a few options open, we decided to hold out for a bit and enjoy checking out some sights.
We first headed down to Holgate to catch a glimpse of Brigantine and Atlantic City. Its amazing to see how close we were. During the summer, we often think it would be really convenient to be able to travel between Brigantine and LBI for deliveries. While there we collected some sand for the collection.
Reminded me of Key WestWe then decided to drive the whole island. The island is 18 miles long so we embarked on our trek to the lighthouse. We found the drive to be ideal since there was minimal traffic and most of the lights were just blinking being that it was the offseason.

We recommend checking out all these spots on your next visit to Long Beach Island.
